“I have come that you may have life and life abundantly” -Jesus (John 10:10).

We are a family knit together by the grace of God for such a time as this.

At Vanessa’s Village we believe it takes a village to raise a child, and our heart is to see the Church raised up to support families of adopted and foster children as well as children with special needs. Through our experience with raising an “adoptive” child, our heart has grown to emotionally support families through support groups, financially support through fund-raise coaching, and spiritually support through prayer and sharing the Gospel through our story.

Vanessa is an exuberant young lady who is on the autism spectrum. Her joy is captivating, her laughter is contagious, and her personality is engaging.

Our heart is to see Vanessa and many others like her come to a place of thriving instead of simply surviving. Where the Lord speaks life and life abundantly, we choose to believe it and call it into existence.

We are currently training under Family Hope Center based out of Norristown, Pennsylvania to bring about healing and development for Vanessa. Family Hope Center partners with parents of children with special needs to bring education, support, and empowerment for the family unit to be the base of at home therapy. They choose to treat the child as a whole instead of simply treating symptoms. For more information on this program, follow the link to their website. http://www.familyhopecenter.com/

Thank you for your partnership in this journey. Welcome to the village.
